This dictionary, compiled by a professional Oceanic linguist and a native speaker of the language, contains almost 5,000 Anejom~ lexical items, with definitions in both English and Bislama (the national language of Vanuatu). Both English-Anejom~ and Bislama-Anejom~ finderlists are provided to make the dictionary accessible both to linguists and to ni-Vanutatu who may not speak or read English.

It is hoped that the dictionay will prove valuable to linguistics, to native speakers, and to children learning to read and write in the language.
